Description - The Good Life in the Old Testament by R. N. Whybray

Can we know how the ancient Israelites conceived of "the good life"? In this, his last work, Norman Whybray studies this question, in a social and theological study of the Hebrew Bible. He discovers that, far from giving a faint or undifferentiated picture of "the good life", the books of the Old Testament each yield a distinct impression of what this life entails, underpinned by divine guidance and protection.
